Tedious but well-photographed atmospheric jazz pic from the Prohibition era.
Like Love Me or Leave Me, also made in 1955, Webb's film is set in the golden age of Prohibition, mixing crime-gangster drama with great jazz music by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee, who received a Supporting Oscar nomination.
There are some wonderful things in this, foremost Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee spreading their special brands of magic, both are luminous. The music is good and Andy Devine, without his trademark voice, is a revelation in a gritty part as a dogged cop. And Edmond O'Brien could play the venal gangster like few others. All these are highly enjoyable but stuck in the center is the absolutely awful Jack Webb, the man makes a blank wall look expressive and that a beauty like Janet Leigh would go to such lengths to catch him makes her seem either seriously misguided or a total idiot. Still for the great stuff contained within its worth at least a view.
